Camino de Santiago

There's an ancient hiking route runs across Northern Spain (and across others parts of Spain, too), called the Camino de Santiago, or The Way of St. James.  It's an ancient pilgrimage route that Catholics began to take,  and many pilgrims still do, that leads to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain.  It was/is believed to be the final resting place of James, from the Bible.  The symbol of the route is a seashell.  When you travel across northern Spain, you see the shell everywhere, indicating the Camino's route.  Also, you notice hikers with the shell hanging from their packs, a symbol of their trek.

Below is an image I created about the pilgrims and their route along the Camino.
